Week Day Wants-Putting Outfits Together

I wanted to do something a little bit different this week for Week Day Wants. I often get asked to just help women put an outfit together. They feel like they can find cute things but they aren't sure how to pair them with others. So, I'm going to put together a couple of casual/everyday outfits that I would personally wear and pick out for someone else. I don't know how "good" I am at this but I sure do love doing it! I'm a fan of mixing different styles and textures together and making sure that things aren't too "matchy matchy". I'm also a fan of going shopping in my own closet before I actually purchase something. A lot of times, we will have similar items in our closets already that will give us the look we're going for without having to pull out our credit cards. But then again, there are time's where you just have to have something and it's totally worth the splurge!

This is an outfit that you could go from running errands to date night without even having to change your shoes. I love contrasting lace with a dark pant and adding in fun metallics give the outfit a unique touch.

This looks like the perfect, casual summer outfit to me. You could wear it to a BBQ, a baseball game or just running around town with your family or friends. It's comfortable, low key but still "put together".

This is an outfit I would wear to go out shopping for the day or even to a festival or park. Long, shapeless dresses aren't very flattering on me since I am so short and have a bigger "backside". It ends up just making me look bigger all around. So having a double wrap belt to cinch it in really helps to give it shape and flatter my body type better.

So, I went to post this yesterday but you guys will thank me that I didn't. I read through it and realized that it made zero sense. Lack of sleep has gotten the best of me this week! Every single person I talked to yesterday asked what was wrong with me and every time I parked my car yesterday, it was between two spots. EverySingleTime. Tonight's going to be an early bedtime for me (yeah right) and I'm going to have so much energy tomorrow (another yeah right) and this busy weekend ahead is going to be a breeze! :)

**These are all outfits that I would wear any day of the week and into the weekend. The prices may not fit into everyone's budget, but remember to go shopping in your own closet first and if you don't have anything similar, stores like T.J. Maxx and Nordstrom Rack always have great prices. I am also continually checking the "sale"section on my favorite store's websites.
Hope you guys are having a good week!
